6th Global Conference on Artificial Intelligence
GCAI 2020, Hangzhou, China, 6-9 April 2020


The 6th Global Conference on Artificial Intelligence (GCAI 2020) will be 
held in Hangzhou, China, 6-9 April 2020, as part of the Zhejiang Logic for 
AI Summit (ZjuLogAI 2020). With its special focus theme on "Explainable AI 
and Responsible AI", the summit intends to promote the interplay between 
logical approaches and machine learning based approaches in order to make 
AI more transparent, responsible and accountable.

Submission Guidelines

GCAI 2020 accepts submissions of two types: 
- Full paper submissions, which must be original and cannot be submitted 
simultaneously elsewhere. Full paper submissions must be at most 12 pages 
long, excluding references. Additional support material may be included in 
an appendix, which may be considered or ignored by the program committee. 
- Extended abstract submissions, which report on ongoing or preliminary work, 
or on work that is central to symbolic reasoning and/or machine/deep learning 
applied to both software and robotic systems, but that has already been 
submitted or recently published elsewhere as a full paper (in the case of an 
already published paper, the full version has to be referenced explicitly). 
Extended abstract submissions must be at most 4 pages long, excluding 

Both types of submissions must be prepared in LaTeX or Microsoft Word using 
the EasyChair templates, and uploaded in PDF format. Submissions not complying 
with these guidelines will be rejected at the discretion of the program 

Each submission will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. 
Abstracts are due on 23 November 2019, full papers and extended abstracts 
are due on 30 November 2019, and decisions will be made by 20 January 2020. 

Submissions: via EasyChair 

Instructions for authors and EasyChair paper templates can be found at
